A Classic Military Wedding in Honor of Veterans Day

written by Marina Strong November 11, 2014

It is Veterans Day, so as we honor all the brave men and women who fight for our freedoms and our country, I thought I would share with you a Sweet, Classic Military Wedding…

Emily and James were High School sweethearts who parted ways after graduation. Emily headed to Boston University to study special education, while James attended West Point and became an Army helicopter pilot. But after lots of phone calls and weekend trips as friends, they knew they couldn’t be apart. They were married in St. Augustine, Florida at the oldest Catholic parish in the U.S., The Cathedral Basilica St. Augustine. Their wedding was classic with a Spanish touch and had a color palette of navy and gold. Take a look at this sneak peek thanks to the gorgeous photography from Brooke Images.
